Behind the scenes of a TalentEgg video shoot (kind of)

Yesterday afternoon we welcomed a design engineer in training from Ontario Power Generation to the Egg Carton for about an hour to shoot a video series for our upcoming Focus on Engineering (Sept. 20-24).

However, before he arrived, I had to configure the “set” to get it ready for the interview. I asked Danielle (editorial assistant) and Daisy (marketing intern) to act as host and guest while I adjusted the camera and the lighting. And recorded them.

Hilarity ensued.

"What kind of walk should we do for the camera?"

Today we had some visitors in the Egg Carton: 2 students from Guelph-Humber came to interview Daniel and I about TalentEgg and the process of finding entry level jobs online.

It was pretty fun having the opportunity to speak directly to students about some of the fears they have in relation to leaving the comfort and safety of education for the wild world of work and careers.

It was also somewhat funny. For example, in one part of the interview I explained how students have to sell themselves when applying for jobs…. And then said “but not on the street”. I’m 25 and immediately felt like a middle-aged woman making an inappropriate joke.

Daniel and I also had (too much) fun doing our ‘walk down the hall’ shot.

Hopefully our new friends from Guelph-Humber will share the final product with us and you’ll all get to view these magic moments for yourselves.
